As I have told you a million times, Marlee has a beautiful imagination. The possibilities are absolutely endless in Marlee’s world. One of my main goals as a parent is to nurture her imagination and creativity and one way to do that is by providing the right toys. Mama May I is an Etsy shop offering some of the best Montessori and Waldorf inspired toys I have seen!
I want to share a blurb from Jessica’s Etsy bio:
“So curious are our little ones. I believe that they learn through play and exploration. When I was pregnant I asked my Grandma for words of wisdom when it comes to raising children. She simply told me: “Don’t say no unless you have to, and if you say no, mean it.” These are words we try to live by in our home – a world of exploration, experimentation, and play for our little girls. I believe they make sense of their worlds, through sensing their worlds – like little scientists hard at work. The more opportunities our little ones are given to discover, the bigger their scope of learning and understanding.”
First off, her writing is beautiful as are her toys. I knew I had found a toy shop with our little ones in mind and couldn’t wait to look around. One of the toys that really caught my eye was the Market Flip Mat. Not only was it perfect for travel, but great for learning and playing! This activity mat offers open ended play with ideas for teaching bartering, business skills and even math.
Marlee loved the play mat and started sorting through and naming the veggies as soon as we opened it. Each one of the play mats at Mama May I come with 12 wooden coins decorated with themed drawings. Ours included: Peas, Potato, Radish, Broccoli, Eggplant, Lettuce, Onion, Tomato, Corn, Carrot, Pepper and Asparagus.
Justin and Marlee spent quite a bit of time bartering fresh veggies on the floor. Marlee loves broccoli and carrots and wouldn’t swap them for anything! It was so cute watching them play!
Mama May I offers a huge variety of toys. Here are a few more of my favorites:
